I am having a dirty, hot, sweaty love affair. With my new mountain bike. Earlier in the month Tac and I took the kids to Tamarack for a little biking vacation. It was so fun. Yesterday for Tac’s birthday he and I went up to Tamarack *without the kids* and had such a fantastic time biking, anyways I did…he broke his rib.
He hoped after a nights sleep he would be up for more biking today, but he was in much pain. Happily for me he is a very sweet guy and read a book most of the day while I biked. Also happy for me, we invited my sister and her husband Rich (whenever I say Rich’s full name I always think of Hyacinth from the BBC show “Keeping Up Appearances”) to join us today so I had someone to bike with.
As we were driving up to Tamarack we listened to My Chemical Romance almost the whole way. I’ve already received an online lecture from a complete stranger about how dumb and immature I am for listening to that “teenager” music, so spare me another one if you were thinking of trying to help me better myself. There are some days when I am really in the mood for some MCR, plus they have a theatric flare to their music that I dig.
On the way home, we listened to everything by The Smashing Pumpkins on shuffle. It confirmed to me that as hard as I was trying not to get too excited about their new song coming out in September, I am in fact fairly excited. Also, when the song “Bring the Light” came on I realized that was the perfect soundtrack song for my day; the best part being taking the lift and riding the downhill trails. They were amazing and fast and technical and without being all tired from a long uphill, I had so much energy to devote to the downhill. The fact that it was the best biking day of my life, made me double sad for Tac though (especially since it was his birthday). I hope he gets better soon.
